Technology is innovative and ever-evolving.
Shouldn’t your legal advice be as well?

There’s a space, growing ever larger, where business, technology and markets meet policy, law and regulation. It is in this space that Macmillan Keck is most at home. It’s a space in which we excel.

We combine a small team’s personal dedication with world class lawyering staffed only by seasoned professionals. We are a law firm driven by the aspirational…while firmly grounded in the practical.

Our work around the world

We have executed complex projects on every continent, ranging from G-20 countries to remote locations where others have never dreamed of working.

80% of the work is knowledge of the subject matter…only 20% is local context. Our work is international because where we excel is in the subject matter.
